How Remote Patient Monitoring Can Solve Many Patient and Provider Problems in Rural Areas
Rural communities across the US are facing an increasing healthcare crisis due to shortages in healthcare providers and facilities, especially as the nursing shortage continues throughout the country. One way people in these rural areas still can receive access to high-quality healthcare in a convenient and cost-effective way is through telemedicine and remote patient monitoring options. Telemedicine in these areas provides critically ill patients, for example, with access to medical specialists without being transferred and traveling an extended distance, and can allow providers to deliver advanced data driven intensivist led care. This session will explore the state of remote patient monitoring in rural America, trends in rural healthcare pushing RPM, drivers that encourage a rural hospital or health system CIO or clinical team to pursue RPM, and what CIOs and other health IT leaders should know about RPM before diving in.

Reimbursements for Remote Patient Monitoring: How to Use Them to Raise Practice Revenue
Healthcare is a highly competitive field, and medical practices routinely find themselves vying for employees, patients, and favorable supplier pricing arrangements. To remain at the top of their game, optimizing operations is essential. Service reimbursements are one of the primary sources of revenue generation for practices, and remote patient monitoring (RPM) supports this income stream admirably. RPM reimbursements are one of the most profitable care management options available. Since the CPT codes were revised in 2020, remote monitoring is now covered by Medicare, Medicaid programs across 34 states, and multiple private payers. Providers receive payment for RPM patient setup and training, followed by a fixed monthly amount for managing health monitoring devices and recording patient readings. In addition, RPM reimbursements cover time spent each month by clinical staff to provide patient care management. This session will explore how you can increase revenue by adopting an RPM solution.

Member Centric Outreach to Improve Outcomes for Blood Pressure Monitoring High blood pressure continues to rise, as almost half of all adults in the U.S. have hypertension. Nearly all primary care physicians, cardiologists, endocrinologists, and nephrologists face the challenge of helping their patients with blood pressure control. And while there is a serious risk of heart attack, stroke an even death, BP control remains a main priority. Patients experience common barriers to hypertension control including disengagement with their provider, lack of hypertension knowledge, negative primary care experience, and lack of disease awareness. Knowledge of barriers and facilitators can inform areas of success and opportunities for improvement in hypertension programs. Building strong relationships and designing member centric intervention strategies can positively influence behaviors, close gaps in care, reduce social risk factors and improve health outcomes. Building an in-home monitoring program can help support patient engagement and reduce social barriers to care. This session will explore on how to strategically engage enrollees from a member-centric approach on completing on providing in-home blood pressure monitoring cuffs. After this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand how to identify data strategies to choose a target population.
  • Learn how to engage members on utilizing in-home blood pressure cuffs.
  • Identify how to implement in-home testing to address screening gaps.
